A script to install all required Software Updates
Authored by: packhater on Sep 19, '08 01:39:03PM

I don't see a /Library/Management folder on my Leopard machine. Also, what if there is already a loginwindow.plist file? Doesn't this script delete it then create its own? Not good if you already have one! :)

Sorry, I should have been more clear. You have to make the Management folder in /Library, or you can edit the script in a few places to put it in a different location of your choosing.

The loginwindow.plist file is not overwritten. I just add and delete the LoginwindowText attribute. If you already have a disclaimer or something set as your login window text, the script could be edited to save any existing contents of LoginwindowText to a file and then put it back the way it was when the updating process completes. That is left as an exercise for the reader. :-)
